Come in from the cold and get your creative juices flowing during the Winter Family Fair at Touchstones Nelson this Sunday, March 9 from noon to 4 p.m.

Make art inspired by the current exhibitions: Found: The Art of Re-Use and Good Medicine: Nelson’s Healthcare History.

Activities include mosaics, x-ray drawings and anatomy colouring sheets. At 2 p.m. don’t miss a theatrical performance by Susan LeFebour about Isabella and Edward Arthur, prominent doctors in early Nelson.

As usual, hot apple cider and treats will be provided, and the art galleries, archives and museum will be open for exploration.

Admission is by donation and half of the proceeds will go to the Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation.
